Joy and Stephen’s love story is a cute one and we love it!
The couple met through a mutual friend when they were both in high school and it has been a beautiful journey ever since their first meeting. Stephen locks up Joy’s heart the moment they went to watch a movie together with Joy’s sister and ever since then, Joy has brought unmatchable joy to Stephen’s heart.
For their pre-wedding shoot, the couple went out of the norm to incorporate their whole squad and bridal party into their theme and the couple with their gang all came to slay…..*Wait for the photos*
Joy & Stephen’s Love Story
By the Bride-to-be
It all began in 2010 whilst studying at college. Some may even call it a high-school sweetheart type of love story. A mutual friend introduced Stephen to me. In those days, Facebook was our main form of communication since we went to different schools. For our first date, my sister and I went to meet Stephen and a few of his friends to watch Precious which had just come out in the cinema. For those who remember Precious. . . it was meant to be an interesting movie and so it was. . . Stephen was such a gentleman and bought me a cinema ticket and offered to buy me popcorn and a drink, being so shy I politely refused however my sister was not shy at all and ordered what she wanted (lool). From then on, we built a special bond that can not be explained and as we now have come to call it LOVE. Stephen has changed my world, taught me how to love and brought so much happiness into my life that I can not imagine my life without him. 9 years later as best friends, lovers, biggest fans and supporters of each other, we are now ready to honour our relationship before God and become husband and wife.
The Surprise Proposal in Paris
Stephen surprised me with a trip to Paris in February 2018. I was oblivious to the plans and thought we were going cinema to celebrate our 8 year Anniversary by watching Black Panther. Strolling through streets of Paris the city of love, eating at corner cafes and having the best time of my life, Stephen got on one knee and asked me to marry him and I said YES! (about time lol ). I just couldn’t stop smiling.This was definitely one of the happiest moments in my life that I will cherish forever. Paris has become one of our favourite cities with such special memories. We came back to London and as soon as we landed we changed and we still managed to go cineworld to watch Black Panther in the exact cinema that we went for our first date. We have to come to love that cinema as it holds special memories for us.
The Groom-to-be is so Loved Up – read his own version of their love story
Meeting Joy was the best thing that has ever happened to me, it was life changing! We have grown and matured a lot over the years together and as every couple we have had our ups and downs, and I can confidently say that I have never been happier than I am today because of this beauty. Taking our relationship to the next step and to honour God in getting Married is an overwhelming feeling, I can’t wait!
Travelling to Tenerife to celebrate Joy’s 25th birthday inspired us to see more of the world. One of my dreams has always been to visit the THE FRENCH RIVIERA. I remember telling Joy that we should visit one day. After our travels to the Canary Islands, Joy came to me and said, why don’t we have the wedding in the french riviera. She showed me venues and the rest is history. I get to explore the french riviera and also get married there.
